Sermon Discussion Questions

TMCC March 17-18, 2018 - Confident & Unashamed - "How to Know God Lives in us"; Pastor Justin McPeak

Have you had any promptings from the Holy Spirit this week?  If so, how did you respond? Why did you respond that way? 

Do you ever think what Justin thought, “What if my observations (promptings of the Spirit) are really invitations to his opportunities?”

Read 1 John 4:7-12

What does that passage reveal to you about God’s love? What does it call us to do?

Justin spoke of how sacrificial love is the defining characteristic of God’s presence. How often do your actions/attitudes/conversations/etc. embody this? 

Read 1 John 3:16-18 and Luke 5:29-32.

What do you feel God is asking you to do?

To experience the love of Jesus we are called to lay down our lives, cross barriers, and endure what we don’t deserve. What are some simple ways we can do this today, tomorrow, this week, and this month?

How can we encourage one another to continually die for one another? 

PRAYER - Spend time in prayer to reflect on what God is prompting you to do this week. Discuss with your group what promptings came to your mind, and how they can hold you accountable.
